Just after leaving school I was a volunteer at Boys' Village in 1977/78 working with James Kimpton for nine months. He was an amazing guy doing fantastic work with some of the most poorest people in the area. I was there when James started building houses for people from his own design. That design still remains after all these years as the most logical and efficient house plan.

When I visited RTU again in December 2016 I found some of those very first houses in G.Kalupatti where RTU is based. They are still standing after over 40 years and still housing people. The amount of good ONE house can do is incredible.

So DON'T BUY ME A 60TH BIRTHDAY PRESENT. Instead PLEASE give generously and let's club together and get this house sorted!!!

Thank you
